Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I totally feel you about the fatigue factor; it's a big issue once you're past one game. There's so much focus required in each game, and after you're done taping, you're ready to collapse. This seems to be the consensus of most multi-day champs, that it just starts to really wear on you. (Didn't w...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

(Now go off and watch the lovely movie "Impromptu" with Judy Davis as Sand and Hugh Grant as Chopin...) I think I've seen 10 minutes of that film, and I was picturing Emma Thompson (wrong person, in any case). Congrats on two wins, and excellent marks in comportment! You are so well spoken that I d...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also, Glenn has explained that they were a bit slow, but Alex really needs to quash the personal quips and elongated comments in games without really fast contestants. We were wondering if they were trying to keep earnings down for a split second It was strange after they asked us to speed things u...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Do my eyes deceive me, or did it seem like Betsy's score said 8600 before the break, and then was corrected to 6600 before FJ was revealed? It seemed like there was a very abrupt edit after the Hall answer; was she originally awarded credit? If so perhaps they failed to take away the $2000 for an i...

Yes, Tom Nissley mentioned it to me (he lives in Seattle, too), and I figured I'd blurt stuff if I joined before my episode aired.

Re: Friday, October 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is basically the gist of what Maggie told us. If there's no other work with a similar name, the judges will probably give you the benefit of the doubt. But she made it clear that only applies to the FIRST article in a title, not one in the middle or end. She also used the example of "Unforgive...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Glenn-Did you have to go home between the taping of Friday and today's show or was it taped the very next day? The next day. I know several folks who have done multi-show runs now that did a run in the afternoon one day, had a week or two between them, and then came back and had the confidence of s...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Take heart, Glenn. It was a brutal board. Nice get on George I. I said William of Orange. Thanks! I don't feel that bad about it. I said I'd write more about why... This was the first game taped on a Wednesday after I'd spent the whole day there on Tuesday, and had won games 4 and 5 with a lot of e...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yay for another game where we don't even reveal an entire category. The video clues actually seemed pretty speedy today, so I was surprised. (Then again, Alex taking an eternity to explain the flub on that Hall clue didn't help.) We were all being a little sluggy that day and using too many words t...

Strange game. Tell me about it! I was really off my form. I'll post more about that later. Will Glenn change his to the letter S? tough break on that DD, but congrats on being a two time champ. Thanks! Yes, I'll put a scarlet S on my avatar! i checked the tape and it did say she had $8,600. I didn'...

This episode may not be seen in many markets because of the presidential debate. My Seattle station will apparently air Jeopardy at 10.30 p.m.

Tell that to the guy ruled incorrect on THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY for $1000 here: http://j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3660 . Oh, yeah, but that's part of the ... huh. I guess that's a funny one. Because "one" isn't an article, but "a" or "an" (or "the") are all articles. I think that cien is Span...

Re: Friday, October 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Glenn definitely earned his win; but another day, another board, and you'd have been the one with the prize. You clearly belonged on that podium. Both my games aired so far were tough fights — buzzer control moved around, people had subject-matter expertise, and we got some very strange categories ...

One Hundred Years of Solitude - they were asking for the English title of the book. I guess they let people slide on by sometimes. We were told in the briefing the first day that an initial article, like A, The, or An, wouldn't count against us if used incorrectly or omitted in Jeopardy and Double ...

Re: Friday, October 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My second week was easier in that regard, because I was playing in games against people I'd just met and had less time to form attachments with (with which to form attachments? argh.) It's interesting how most of us, even the competitive ones, want to bond with the other contestants instead of keep...

Re: Economist on Jeopardy!

Once I got the call, I bought a notebook and started working my way through the Pavlovs, making notes on areas where I was weak. The memory tricks in Bob Harris's book Prisoner of Trebekistan were pretty helpful, and it's a fun book if anyone here hasn't read it. Bob's book is an underrated memoir,...

Abby reminded me of the recent SNL sketch The Californians. Everyone's piling on Abby! I didn't notice her speech style when I met her. She's a lovely person through and through, and very bright. I didn't realize she was so young (I can't tell if she's a senior this year or just graduated from coll...
